Staff from Mom’s Empowerment, Supportive Services for Veteran Families, Individual Development Accounts, and Permanent Housing are still here for you. Case managers and specialists will speak with clients via telephone; no in-person meetings at this time. Reach out to your case manager if you have questions.
We are cancelling group classes and workshops. However, employment services staff are available to provide one-on-one coaching and resume assistance. Call either the Kansas City or St. Joseph office to connect this program.
We are asking volunteers to patiently wait to resume their volunteer activity.
Protecting the health of our staff and visitors
We have asked all our staff and volunteers to follow guidance from the CDC regarding frequent handwashing and cleansing of surfaces and covering their coughs and sneezes.
Following local government directives, we are operating both offices with limited staff on site. Clients and employees who are sick are asked to remain at home.
This situation is fluid and changes frequently. We are actively monitoring current information and adjusting accordingly.
It is now and always has been, Catholic Charities mission to provide support for the most vulnerable in our communities and we are gathering data and planning for what actions we should take to assure that assistance is uninterrupted and is delivered safely.
